This bracelet is made from the most fascinating of gemstone minerals called Turritella Agate. Round beads of the agate are form a bracelet along with two gold-plated lead-free Pewter faceted beads and a skull. Perfect for a young adult, both female or male. The rare and interesting agate will give them something to show and tell their friends.
Turritella Agate is mined from the Green River Formation in Wyoming, USA. The material is brown with swirls of black, grey and white. Take a look closer and you will easily recognize that these swirls are in fact tightly coiled elongated cones or turrets of a freshwater mollusc or snail that thrived in the Rocky Mountains some 50 million years ago. When these snails dies, the shells would sink to the bottom of the lakes and become buried by sediments. With the passage of time, these layers of shells become silicified (hardened with silica) forming the brown fossiliferous agate that is known as Turritella Agate. It is thought among natural healers to provide protection and strength.
